Praise for Never Say Goodbye
“With a voice pure and true, Luan Parle sings from the heart but aims for the gut. From lovelorn country ballads to gothic Americana to hard-hitting social commentary, with this album Luan's songwriting has matured to the point where she can rightfully claim to be the Emmylou of the Emerald Isle. Nashville are you listening?”

“With Never Say Goodbye, Luan Parle has delivered her finest collection of songs to date…
The single, ‘My Something Beautiful', blends jangly pop/rock smarts with country textures…guitar- driven with an insistently jaunty pace, it’s is the kind of song which would sit happily in the repertoires of Emmylou Harris, Natalie Merchant or even The Bangles. There are echoes too of Fleetwood Mac in the seductive chorus and the tune is firmly grounded in that classic, West Coast FM radio sound which has proved so enduring over the years. To put it another way, If Parle guested with [the late] Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers at their peak, the results would sound something like this...”
